arrested on suspicion of burglary after a mobile phone shop's alarm
At just after midnight on Wednesday December 12 the intruder
alarm was activated at the T-mobile shop on Montague Street in
Worthing. Police were called and using local CCTV and unmarked
vehicles in the town, they managed to locate the suspects'
The vehicle then headed northbound along the A24 and was later
stopped by police officers at the Capel roundabout, aided by
officers from Surrey. Two men were arrested and a quantity of
mobile phones were recovered.
Detective Sergeant Alex Lowe said: "At this time of year there is
often an increase in this type of offence as criminals try to cash
in on Christmas. Worthing officers conducted a well co-ordinated
and effective investigation which led to the early arrest of the
offenders. This demonstrates that if you commit this type of crime,
you will get caught."
The two men, a 21-year-old from Brighton and a 41-year-old,
remain in custody on Wednesday 12 December.
